This weeks poll was close all week, with the top four being within a few votes of each other up until last night, when the top 2 pulled ahead by a couple of votes. Still, there was only a vote between the top 2 anyway, but only one could come out on top. And that person was Vampyrist for Doc Starr. Congrats Vamp and well done to everyone else who entered.
Apparently Marvel is releasing a new Animated Version of the Guardians of The Galaxy to air on Disney XD.
So, I don’t know if everyone has been reading all of the comments for this weeks CDC, but there has been some discussion (amongst the obvious definitions of when certain “ages” of comics start/ end) between myself and William Peterson about the merit of modern comic book art styles. WillyPete hates them, judging by his comments, whereas I, who has grown up with this sort of art being the norm, quite like them. So I want to get your guys opinion on it. Do you like the art style of modern comics, or do you prefer the older silver/ bronze age art styles?
For the sake of ease we’ll define Silver Age as the 1960′s, Bronze Age as 1970′s and the Modern Age as post 2000, just to clear up any confusion and to make sure we don’t go into the 90′s hate again, because we can all agree that was mostly rubbish and anyway that’s not what I’m talking about.
Also, if you guys want me to make this an on-going weekly blog post again like it was last summer, I’m open to it. I’ve got one, maybe two ideas for questions, but if you want to make suggestions, I will take those into consideration.
Anyway, JR out.
Ok one week has past since I put this redesign up for discussion and your vote and the results are in. I asked you if you Loved, Hated, or were just Meh to this Batgirl costume and this is what you, our fine HeroMachine community has told me based on your votes.
Love It: 188 votes
Meh to it: 89 votes
Hate it: 38 votes
So it appears that more of you guys and gals out there love this design then those that hate it and are meh to it combined! It is interesting to note that as WillyPete pointed out though the vote was so heavily slanted towards loving it yet no one from that camp came forward to tell us way. So here is one last chance for you to come forwards and let us know your reasons behind the way you voted. Don’t be shy we don’t bite around, well not much away!!
Ok guys, we’re going to skip over the Bronze Age this week and go straight into the Modern Age of comics. This means you’ve got a bit more leeway on your character design, as this period covers the 80′s, 90′s and the 21st century, so hopefully you’ll find something inspiring amongst those three.
As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). The winner gets to claim a custom made item from dblade to be put into heromachine, so long as the item conforms to his prize rules, which you can find here: http://www.heromachine.com/forum/the-heromachine-art-gallery/dblades-whiz-bang-item-dispenser/. Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
